    Smile Rotate Screen with JS?

    Hello all,

    this might be a little far fetched, but I thought I'd ask. I can't find it searching the web or maybe I am not putting in the correct terms... anyhow..

    I would like to be able to have my "page" online be at a 45degree angle, rather than 90degrees... does that make sense?

    As in if something is square, use photoshop ctrl-t to rotate the square object to 45degrees rather than 90.

    Can I do this in a browser window?

    Thanks!

    No, you can't and yes you can.
    No you can't if you don't want to use images or flash, yes if you're willing to use flash or images.
    JavaScript is out of the option.

    not entirely true, IE will allow you to set a filter that rotates an element (even the body) but unfortunately you can only rotate an image using the Canvas object in Firefox.

    And what about Safari, Opera, iWeb, and many other browsers?
    I think you should consider using Flash instead of an IE filter or the Canvas object in FF. Accessibility goes down with Flash, but you'd flush that concept entirely through the drain.
